Educational Weekend


What a wonderful weekend I had. I had been invited to join two talent longarm quilters in our area to join them at a longarm quilt conference. Classes were offered for all levels of experience, which is good because I am not at the same level as these two ladies. After registering on the first morning we were chatting with other students. One of our group asked a young woman (any woman than my 60 + is younger but as it happened she is my daughter’s age) where she is from to which she replied “Australia”. We asked if she had come just for this event, which she replied “yes”. Well we decided Catherine would not be by herself this weekend and we dragged her along with us.
We spent a long evening at Seafood Restaurant learning about Australia. She learn probably more about America and us than she wanted. We all learn a lot in our classes and look forward to applying those lessons on our longarm machines. Catherine had plans to stay one more day and travel the return trip on Tuesday. I have heard she has been delayed as the flights have been cancelled by the winter storm.
I hope that we will meet again, maybe at quilting event somewhere. My husband would not mind taking a trip to Australia even if it’s to a quilt show.

I have over 35 years of quilting, teaching and sewing experience. I applied these skills to produce quilt patterns to encourge new quilters to express their creativity and technique with confidence. Experienced quilters will appreciate the quick, easy but versatile patterns. I hope you enjoy my view of the quilting world.
